Just wanted to say I love this post!!! :) Great ideas. I feel like this could work with any insecurity. The letter to yourself was beautiful. 


In Topic: Why Do People Stare?

D: I understand. I wear makeup, and although my acne isn't as bad as it could be, I'm always scared that without my makeup I will be treated differently/stared at.

 

I work at a fast food place, and there's a lot of people who order that are teens/adults that have acne. I always try to make a point to look in their eyes. I hate when you're talking to someone, and you can see their eyes shifting all over your face.

 

Sometimes, though, the customer doesn't make eye contact with me because they are embarrassed. I wish they knew I can totally relate. When I see someone with really severe acne, particularly a girl my age without makeup, I envy her confidence because I can't even go out without makeup.
